This course provides a thorough grounding in the fundamentals of computer science. There are extensive opportunities to specialise in a range of advanced areas while gaining skills in system development and enterprise. We review our curriculum constantly to ensure it remains at the leading edge.

Core ideas are introduced in years one and two. You will learn the principles of algorithms and programming, covering three key paradigms: imperative, functional and object-oriented.

You will study mathematics and statistics underpinning modern computer science; how a modern computer architecture is organised; concurrent systems and networks; and foundations of human-computer interaction, cybersecurity and theoretical and data-driven computer science.

A key component of year two is the software team project in which you work with others to develop an application for a real-world client with help from an industrial mentor.

In your final two years you will choose from a wide range of optional units in order to specialise in selected advanced areas of computer science. You will undertake another significant team project, focused on immersive entertainment. You will also conduct an individual project, co-created with a supervising member of staff, with opportunities to work with industrial and research partners.
